    I have been working at ANPI full-time (less than an year)

    Pros

    The company is well funded and has a ton of potential. 100% paid benefits and a solid product. You can write your own ticket to success but you have to be willing to put in the work and deal with some chaos that comes with a new product and organization.

    Cons

    If you want a job that you can just show up to and leave then this place is not for you. Work life balance can be a challenge, but if you do a good job and are efficient management can be understanding (depending on who you work for). Direction changes on a regular basis and resources can be scarce at times.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    We need a rallying cry to build a more cohesive culture around, simple mission and vision would do it as long as all the leaders got behind it.

    I worked at ANPI full-time (more than an year)

    Pros

    The company benefits are great.

    Cons

    This company has the potential to be great but it will not get out of its own way. They hire people and effect the lives of many when they change direction when they find that the product that they have lunched does not meet the clients needs and therefore lay of personel and whip the board clean only to repeat the same mistakes and effect more people lives.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Stop thinking of just selling a product without thinking it through. An successful company succeeds not by only how much money there is to be made but by thinking of the warfare and growth of its employees. If you don't place stock in your personnel and thinking things through you will continue to fail.

    I have been working at ANPI full-time (more than 10 years)

    Pros

    ANPI is a fast paced, continually growing and evolving company. It is not a place for the weak at heart but will give back to the hard working employee of any level as much as and more than is given. If you are looking for an opportunity to grow, build, improve, and truly be a part of something this is the place.

    Cons

    There are no cons from my perspective.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Continue to keep the lines of communication open. The monthly employee forums and open discussions with the executive management team are beneficial to all and an opportunity for staff to ask questions, gain clarity and re-energize.

    Brand awareness is growing with the Enterprise Retail space but ANPI is a newer brand to this customer sect as they have been in the wholesale space for 18+ years. Customers need to be educated on Hosted Offerings

    I have been working at ANPI full-time (less than an year)

    Pros

    ANPI has been a growing business for almost 20 years. Now, due to FCC changes, one of their main sources of income will be dwindling away. To their credit, they've created a new product -- a new revenue stream -- and have positioned themselves to be more successful than ever. I'm just one of the employees, but I can feel the excitement from the CEO on down.

    On the more practical side, ANPI pays all medical insurance fees and deductibles are very small. For my larger family, that is very big.

    And for the most part, work is done by 5 pm.

    Cons

    All these moves and changes can be unsettling, but I'm feeling more and more confident about our future.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Keep up the good communication, and make sure the product is perfect before the sales push goes full force.

    I have been working at ANPI full-time (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    If you are willing to work hard, you will be rewarded. A lot of telco's have had to make significant shifts in business process and focus. ANPI is one of these companies. In order to stay relevant, reorganization and prioritization have cause some growing pains, but they are required for the longevity of the organization.

    The Benefits are amazing. Health, Dental, Life, Vacation, Health reimbursements.

    You also can make an impact. Management frequently engages will all parts of the company for input and feedback.

    The company has become somewhat of a 17 yr old startup. High expectations, but limitless potential.

    Cons

    A lot of moving parts. Lots of simultaneous projects. Ability to pivot and wear multiple hats is definitely required.

    I have been working at ANPI full-time (more than 5 years)

    Pros

    The pace of innovation, compensation and having a voice at every level are three main pros that keep me at the company.

    Cons

    Although the pace of innovation is fast, the work pace can sometimes be relentless. As soon as project completes, ten more are in the hopper.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Don't be afraid to share the bad news. Most employees would rather hear a little bad news then to be left to their own thoughts when changes occur in the organization.

    I worked at ANPI

    Pros

    None since the Cons outweigh the Pros.

    Cons

    Poor senior management from the CEO on down. No direction and plenty of finger pointing, sabotaging and back stabbing. The CTO wants and thinks he should be the CEO and is constantly undermining all other senior managers. Good employees let go so friends of the hiring managers can replace them. The HR manager's husband works for the company even though there is a strict no nepotism rule in place. One of the worst run companies that I have ever been associated with.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Sell the company and start over with a new CEO and senior management team. The current management team should watch your back.
